Friday White Sail 6 – Results

A record breaking turnout with 9 boats competing against each other and the light winds.  A very close and crowded first mark was the main excitement with most boats only managing to complete a single lap before the race was shortened.  Congratulations again to Ken and the Zero Proof crew.  Full results:

  1. Zero Proof
  2. Indulgence
  3. SmiJ
  4. Apparition
  5. Misty Blue
  6. Eclipse

Wilson Cup and JPR2 – Results

Nine boats turned out for the second of our Joint Passage Race series in conjunction with the Royal Forth.  Very good starts by all led to some close racing to Channel Buoy 7, followed by a fast spinnaker leg behind Inchkeith before the wind died on the beat back.  Race shortened at RFYC mark Z to be fair to the slower boats.  Obviously when these decisions are made it wasn’t long before the wind filled in nicely!

The results for the Wilson Cup are:

  1. Misty Blue
  2. Apparition
  3. SmiJ

The overall results for the Joint Passage Race are as follows:

  1. Meteor
  2. Hannah
  3. Misty Blue
  4. Wizz Too
  5. Stargazer
  6. Apparition
  7. SmiJ
  8. Timania
  9. Skimmer

Visit of Moonspray

The Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust 44′ boat Moonspray will be visiting Granton next week –

ETA Thursday 23 to Sat 25 June. Her young crew are cancer recoverers and the Trust are keen that they don’t have to raft up and clamber over other boats (and this will assist in visits from parents etc) if it can be avoided. Can you all please help by ensuring the first 60ft of the north end outside of EML Pontoon is kept clear for their arrival.

More information on Moonspray’s trip round Britain can be found here. and details of the crew on the trip to and from Granton can be found here.

Thanks!
